What does current awareness and discovery portal InfoNgen offer competitive and market intelligence professionals?


Apparently, 90% of the world's data was created in the last two years. With all that information flying around, it's important to source and pick out what's relevant to your role - in order to stay ahead of the game.

That's where current awareness tools come in. With a need to be able to filter the relevant market intelligence, information professionals now rely heavily on these tools so will want the best available.

Jinfo has taken a thorough look at InfoNgen, a web monitoring, news and research aggregation service, in a new review. Jinfo Subscribers can now log in to read our "Product review of InfoNgen".

What makes InfoNgen stand out?

"The InfoNgen discovery portal is a semantic web discovery platform that provides content discovery and text analytics solutions for competitive and market intelligence teams across a wide range of industries."

Reviewer Andrew Lucas says that what makes it stand out from competitors is its "search functionality, its industry vertical focus and its newsletter and content distribution capabilities".

InfoNgen can filter and monitor market intelligence across the sectors of:

  • Legal
  • Financial
  • Corporate
  • Pharmaceutical.

It's used by:

  • Competitive intelligence professionals
  • Analysts
  • Knowledge managers
  • Product managers
  • Information professionals.

With a new product interface and the addition of new newsletter features and sentiment analysis, InfoNgen seems to be on the right track. 

But have all the changes since we last reviewed the product in 2013 been worthwhile? Read the full report to find out the key advantages of the portal, users and use-cases, a complete look at its search and user interface, and further technology such as facets.


What's next for InfoNgen?

Plans include voice-activated query building and continuing to build on its key capabilities such as text extraction and annotation.
